Escape's take on Accounting for Sustainability (A4S)

The A4S project scored highly on their Mission and 'Planet' sections of this year's Escape 100. Not unsurprising for an organisation whose stated vision is a future where sustainable business is business as usual. They work with financial leaders and CFOs from leading organisations to try and embed sustainability and drive change within those organisations to achieve a sustainable economy. Naturally, their team laud the "important mission" that they're on and the gratification of the work that they do.
